Zurich, Switzerland, April 20th 2007 – Tecan’s shareholders approved all motions of the board of directors during yesterday’s 2007 Annual General Meeting. However, due to a mistake in the compilation of the votes, the voting rights of a single large shareholder were not properly considered. This shareholder, who is subject to the 5% voting restriction based on Tecan’s articles of incorporation, supported the Board’s motions with all of his 602,367 authorized votes (equivalent to 5% of the votes).
Based on this fact, the results of the Annual General Meeting are to be corrected such that the motions of the Board were supported by an additional 602,367 votes.
